Outlet Shopping & a Mini Makeover

I adore finding deals at the outlets, so I was very excited to collaborate with Toronto Premium Outlets for this post and share my best shopping finds with you!

My first stop was Saks Off 5th - where I spotted this gorgeous pink tweed dress. The silhouette is so classic and timeless - it feels like something Jackie O would have worn. The dress was designed by Nanette Lepore, and I paid $90 (on sale from $188) for this dress.

For my next clothing find, I went from classic to completely distressed! My love for distressed jeans is still going strong - and this pair below from American Eagle Outfitters has lots of rips, yet doesn't show a lot of skin, thanks to its sewn-in patches. It also features custom-cut hems, which are very trendy at the moment - and are perfect for showing off your shoes! My sparkly necklace is also an outlet find - I can never pass up a J.Crew Factory store - their statement necklaces are so well-made. I paid $35 for this tortoise-shell & crystal necklace (the original price was $70).

My hair and makeup are a bit different in this second photo. That's because I visited the Shoppers Drug Mart #SDMBeauTIFFul Suite last week, and let their hair, makeup and manicure experts do their thing - here's what they did:

Hair (by Anthony Cristiano using Phyto Products) - Although I have been parting my hair in the middle, Anthony said I had a square face and would look best with a side part and some volume in the "bangs" region.  Since he has done Adriana Lima and Kim Kardashian's hair - I definitely wanted to follow his advice! He braided my hair on one side and loosely curled the rest of my hair - these curls lasted for 4 days!!!

Makeup (by Lyndsay Craig using Stila and Ardell Products) - I usually wear bright lips, pink blush and lightly-lined eyes, but Lyndsay applied heavily winged liner, thick lashes, nude lips and a tawny blush. Although I still prefer a bright lip - I'm definitely going to replicate this eye and cheek look again.

Nails (by Melissa Forrest using Ceramic Glaze) -I've been wearing pale pink polishes all summer - so it was nice to switch it up with a rich burgundy polish. Click here for a closer look at my mini makeover.


I left the Shoppers Drug Mart TIFF Suite with a lot of exciting new goodies to try - including a DUO lash adhesive that you apply like a liner...I usually waste so many cotton buds using eyelash glue! I loved the Ardell Demi-Wispies lashes used in my makeover and will definitely be buying more of them. Other gifts included: Seche Vite Top Coat (and Base Coat - not pictured), Rihanna's latest perfume Crush, Stila lipstick, eyeshadow and mascara AND a mini-bottle of Phyto shampoo.

What's the best thing you've ever learned during a makeover? For me - I think it was watching how Anthony curled my hair - am going to try replicate it, fingers crossed!

DISCLAIMER: Toronto Premium Outlets provided me with a giftcard that I used for my purchases.
